2:00 am
a voice of empowerment. more than a little bit. "washington post" has a good one. what you want. baby, she had it. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm ryan nobles. it is friday, august 17th. 5:00 a.m. in the east. we start with politics. president trump is not done using security clearances. officials confirms the white house is considering stripping more clearances in the coming days despite the furor over the president's retaliation against john brennan. several intelligence colleagues are now rallying around him. several issued a new statement. among them, six former cia chiefs. including all five from 1997 until brennan came in. >> they write, quote, the president's actions regarding john brennan and threats of similar action against other former officials has nothing to do with who should and should not hold security clearances and everything to do with the attempt to stifle free speech. this is a signal to other former and current officials and that
2:01 am
signal is inappropriate and deeply regrettable. >> the statement came hours after the architect of the osama bin laden raid retired admiral william mcraven published a stunning rebuke of president trump. he wrote, brennan is one of the finest public servants i have ever known. i would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well so i can add my name to the list of men and women who spoken up against your presidency. >> despite the criticism. most republicans don't seem to think revoking brennan's clearance is that big of a deal. >> i don't know why former employees continue to carry their clearance anyway. i don't see how he has helped. >> mr. brennan has gone way over the line in my view. pulling his clearance makes sense. >> the fact he is out there
2:02 am
every single day acting in a partisan way doesn't help his cause. >> former top government officials are generally allowed to keep security clearance to advise future administrations. president trump will have to wait until next year for his military parade. it was scheduled for november, but the defense department will explore dates into 2019. the parade would be held on the anniversary of the eve of the armistice that ended world war i. >> the planning for the parade is up to $92 million. tens of millions higher than expected. on a flight to colombia, james mattis disputed those numbers. >> whoever told you that is probably smoking something that is legal in my state, but not in most states. i'm not dignifying that with a reply. i would discount that and anybody who said that, i almost guarantee you one thing, they need to stay anonymous. no kidding. you look like an idiot and whoever wrote it needs better sources.
2:03 am
i don't know who wrote it. i haven't seen it. i guarantee you there is no cost estimate. >> the pentagon is not saying why they postponed this to next year. the president called for a parade in washington after the bastille day parade in france last year. "new york times" reports that white house aides are worried that omarosa could have up to 200 recordings and they could be on them. omarosa released a tape on thursday. she and eric trump's wife, lara trump, were heard on the tape discussing a $180,000 a year campaign job. >> obviously with "the new york times" article and stuff. >> what is "the new york time"
2:04 am
article? >> the one -- it was the article with maggie where they wrote about you. it sounds like obviously there is something that you could go out. clearly if you came on the campaign, we cannot have -- >> oh, god, no. >> omarosa considered that job offer a hush agreement. lara trump claimed the recording was edited. she said i shared a connection with her and campaign sister. i am saddened by the distrust on a personal level. and omarosa's publisher will not back down despite threats from the trump campaign. jurors return for the second day of deliberations in the trial of paul manafort. on day one of deliberations, no verdict. jurors did send a note asking the judge t.s. ellis for
2:05 am

>> the abcs. she could sing it. it would become a classic because of the way she did it and how she did it. the feeling she had and her soul came out in everything. >> aretha franklin was the first woman admitted in the rock 'n' roll hall of fame. she had 88 billboard chart hits during the rock era. won 18 grammy awards. she started singing at her father's church in detroit. >> he did say at one point that one day i would sing for kings and queens. he did say that. i have. >> aretha franklin remembered by political figures on both sides of the political aisle. >> i want to begin today by

the tax cuts boosted spending and investment. the tariffs prompted a rush with the soybeans. the cbo is not as optimistic as kudlow. the cbo predicts the economy will grow 3.1%. that is fantastic. they see it tapering off. 2.1% next year and 1.7% in 2020. by then, the effects of tax cuts would have faded and higher interest rates could cut into spending leaving the u.s. to face climbing deficits. breaking news. a phoenix police officer in critical condition at this hour after being shot. a man parked in a vehicle in north phoenix fired at the officer twice. he returned fire. officer and suspect in critical condition. the officer is not identified. he has been with the department

2:16 am
he said in a social media post, i just want 30 seconds alone with the heartless psychopath. he went on to say may satan have mercy on his soul. he has not been formally charged. chris watts will be back in court on tuesday. prosecutors have until monday to bring charges against him. back to you, christine, ryan. paul, thank you. the vatican says it condemns the sexual abuse of minors. pressure had been building on the pope to address the grand jury report describing the crimes of 300 predator priests in pennsylvania. the vatican says the church must learn hard lessons and abuses described in the report are criminal and morally reprehensible. those were betrayals of the trusts that rob survivors of their dignity and faith. he hopes the church will embrace the grand jury recommendations and including eliminating the statute of limitations.

music. welcome back to "early start." i'm ryan nobles. >> i'm christine romans. 31 minutes past the hour this friday morning. let's start in washington. president trump is not done using security clearances. officials confirms the white house is considering stripping more clearances in the coming days despite the furor over the president's retaliation against john brennan. several colleagues are rallying behind him now. several issued a new statement. among them, six former cia chiefs. including all five from 1997 until brennan came in. >> they write, quote, the president's actions regarding john brennan and threats of similar action against other former officials has nothing to do with who should and should not hold security clearances and everything to do with the attempt to stifle free speech. this is a signal to other former and current officials and that signal is inappropriate and deeply regrettable. >> the statement came hours
2:32 am
after the architect of the osama bin laden raid retired admiral william mcraven published a stunning rebuke. he wrote, brennan is one of the finest public servants i have ever known. i would like you to revoke any security clearance as well. so i can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency. >> despite the criticism. most republicans don't seem to think revoking brennan's clearance is that big of a deal. >> i don't know why former employee continue to carry their clearance anyway. i don't see how he has helped. >> mr. brennan has gone way over the view. i think redistricting -- restricting his clearance or pulling his clearance makes sense. >> the fact he is out there every single day acting in a partisan way doesn't help his
2:33 am
cause. >> former top government officials are generally allowed to keep security clearance to advise feud administrations. >> let's bring in greg valliere from washington. what do you make of this? this is a political hit list. this is the president trying to drain the intelligence community that is at odds with his policies to people. brennan is a partisan hack. >> christine, i think the rev b reverberations from the helsinki summit are still an issue. siding with the russian intelligence rather his own intelligence community. trump can say they are all against me. there are two sides to the story. a lot of moving parts.
2:34 am
>> greg, i want to talk about the decision by the department of defense to hold off on the president's military parade that is supposed to take place in early november. the reports that the cost estimates were in the $90 million range. listen to what the defense secretary had to say. this was before they announced the parade would be canceled. listen. >> whoever told thank you is problem -- whoever told you that is probably smoking something legal in my state, but illegal in other states. i will not dignify that with a reply. they probably said i need to stay anonymous. no kidding because you look like an idiot. and whoever wrote it needs to get better sources. i don't know who wrote it. i haven't seen it. i guarantee you there is no cost estimate. >> the number is $92 million. greg, would that be enough for the white house and the pentagon
2:35 am
to think twice about putting the parade on? >> i think so, ryan. maybe there are national security reasons we are not aware of. we are entering into a period of fiscal '19 of deficits exceeding $1 trillion a year. with deficits of that enormity. whether it is $90 million or $80 million. whatever. the fact we are spending this much money on a parade with deficits exploding doesn't send a good signal. >> $21.3 trillion national debt and this is the republican party of fiscal restraint that has both houses and in control. listen to larry kudlow talk about the economy yesterday. >> our economy, our investors, or work force are crushing it right now. we are crushing it. and people say this sustainable. it is a one-quarter blip.
2:36 am
nonsense. any economist worth his or her salt will look at the trends and say we are going for a while. >> they hope so. he says people say that 4.1% in the second quarter. look at the annual growth. cbo says 3.1% annual growth this year. that is good for a year. look at how it tapers off as the effects of the tax cuts slow here. again, soaring deficits and soaring national debt. how does the republican party square that when you are going to the polls? >> that is quite a shift. i would say this, i think kudlow probably has it right for the next couple of quarters. there is so much fiscal and monetary stimulus in the pipeline that the economy will stay good. there is a dark cloud. that dark cloud is all the uncertainty over trade. i am encouraged with progress with mexico and maybe with
2:37 am
china. this uncertainty will persist. because of that, growth will be weaker by the time we get to 2019. the good news and we talked about this last week, christine. interest rates softened a bit. when there is this uncertainty, turkey, trade, the investors go. the haf evidesafest is treasury. >> certainly you want interest rates falling with deficits like this and jacking up the national debt with interest rates rising. that is unsustainable. greg, have a nice weekend. >> thank you. nothing but love, admiration and of course, respect for fans and friends for the late queen of soul. aretha franklin. ♪ r-e-s-p-e-c-t ♪ find out what it means to me ♪ >> mourners gathered outside the
